Warriors winger Manu Vatuvei will return in Round 8.

Manu Vatuvei has been named to return from a hamstring injury for the Warriors' Anzac Day match with the Storm, one of several changes for Andrew McFadden's team.

As he did in Round 7, Tuimoala Lolohea will play at fullback in place of the injured Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, while Thomas Leuluai will partner Shaun Johnson in the halves.

Jonathan Wright drops back to a bench that also features Jacob Lillyman, Charlie Gubb and Ligi Sao.
